Telling the truth and doing what's right are important, and both Fred and the Prodigal Son discover these lessons the hard way when they run Out of Control in TV Land!
Some of life's big problems can start with a thing as small as a simple mistake. Fred the dog finds this out when he accidentally stumbles upon the television show, Things With Teeth. Although Fred's friend Susie doesn't think he's old enough to watch the show, Fred disobeys her. And that gets Fred into all kinds of crazy trouble. Fortunately, Susie knows the Bible story of The Prodigal Son and uses it to teach her friend a gentle lesson about doing the right thing, as well as being honest about making mistakes.

Being kind to a friend is easy, but what about helping someone you don't really know? That's what Being a Good Banana is all about!
A pleasant day in the park for Fred and Lacey suddenly changes when they witness a group of bullies stealing a toy from Sherman, the new kid in the neighborhood. Although Lacey springs into action, Fred hesitates to get involved because he's not sure what to make of the bullies. Fortunately, Fred's best friend Susie has some answers and teaches him the Bible story of the Good Samaritan. Showing kindness isn't always easy, however, and before it's over, Fred learns a valuable lesson about keeping a cool head when dealing with bullies.
